    I saw Ben do one play action pass. Can't remember the outcome because I was in shock.

    It's like watching the "old" Patriots play.

    There was one aspect of the motion that I wasn't a fan of. They kept putting DJ in motion on jet sweeps and faking the handoff to him, then giving the ball to the up-back. NY wasn't biting on the jet sweep at all. All it did was take a WR out of the picture entirely from a blocking perspective, and the corner had a free, uncontested shot at the running back.

    That play needs to go into the circular folder.

    They can draw up all the new O they want, but 0 INTs was one key to victory.
    All Defense!

    Its a setup play. They are putting it on film so teams play the up back. I wouldn't be surprised at all if the first or second time they show that look against Denver, DJ will get it on the sweep.

    Very true. No one is going to respond to moving a bunch of guys around when they have little film of you doing it. I'm not explaining myself well, but the payoff will come down the road.

    The thing is, all those non-handoffs on the jet sweep set up the game-sealing play when they handed the ball to Claypool for the first down. He got the corner because the defense probably wasn't ready to bite on the jet sweep because they hadn't handed it off all game. That's how you call a game to set up a play later in the game or in future games.
